The decline and fall of medieval Sicily : politics, religion, and economy in the reign of Frederick III, 1296-1337 by Clifford R Backman( Book )

29 editions published between 1995 and 2011 in English and Italian and held by 480 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first detailed study of Sicilian life in the reign of Frederick III (1296-1337), a period which marked Sicily's transition from a bustling and prosperous Mediterranean emporium to a poor backwater torn apart by violence. This book, by focusing on Frederick III's crucial reign, argues that there were many more things "wrong" with Sicilian life than just the shape of its overseas trade relations. Placing itself between those who blame the foreigners and those who blame the Sicilians themselves, it shows that an entire nexus of factors and influences were at work in unraveling Sicilian life. It also demonstrates that these forces can be seen best in the forty years that followed Sicily's liberation from foreign control in the bloody war of the "Sicilian Vespers."
The cultures of the West : a history by Clifford R Backman( Book )

18 editions published between 2013 and 2019 in English and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Cultures of the West stands apart from other textbooks in a variety of ways, the first being thematic unity. What did people think and believe, throughout our history, about human nature, the right way to live, God, the best forms of government, or the meaning of human life? Rather than maintaining a single interpretive stance, author Clifford R. Backman relies upon a consistent set of questions: What did people think and feel throughout the centuries about politics, science, religion, and sex? How did they come to their positions regarding the right way to live? Backman's many years of experience in the classroom have informed his approach-students respond to engaging questions more than they are inspired by facts. --
